Hello, my name is Keith Hall. I have lived in 3 distinct states (Louisiana, New York, Georgia) and Washington, DC. Each place has offered an abundance of experiences that brought me closer to my faith and friends. Being around a mostly Baptist family always made me hesitant to fully embrace my homosexuality. I would always avoid gender-revealing pronouns when describing my friends and partners. I finally accepted myself after moving away from family and fostering new friendships. I joined Dignity Washington a few months after the Supreme Court ruled gay marriage was legal in every state. Since joining Dignity, my spiritual journey has lead me to multiple retreats with the Dignity Young Adult Caucus, new beliefs, and authentic relationships. I hope that experiencing World Youth Day will bring me further along my Christian journey while uniting with my brothers and sisters in Christ.
